FOREWORD 

As the years roll on, the Mirror hecomes a more 
stable part of the school. After the novelty of publish- 
ing the "Mirror" had disappeared its material became 
forced. It has been the aim of the Mirror Board to in- 
spire, not compel students to write. We wish to ex- 
press a word of appreciation to those who have will- 
ingly taken a share of the responsibility in publishing 
this year book.

TO 
MR. JOSEPH B. RIDDLE 



We, the Senior Class, dedicate this year book with 
sincere appreciation for his inestimable influence in 
building the traditions and ideals of North Shore ; and 
for the desire for Social Justice he has inspired in us 
through the medium of his History classes.

OPENING OF SCHOOL 

The beginning of school this year held a significance 
■which many of us missed. It meant the beginning of 
the second chapter in our history. Heretofore all has 
been development ; now comes the test. At first, when 
student government, universal athletics, and other items 
of progressive education were just being formulated , 
everyone was ready to pitch in and help things along. 
Now that ive have definite traditions and established 
institutions it remains to be seen whether these traditions 
are self-operative ; whether they' will continue to exist 
after those who built them arc gone. 

In view of the fact that our coming years are the 
test of tradition, it may appear incongruous that in Mr. 
Smith's opening speech he reiterated the word "change" 
so emphatically. That was not as strange as you would 
think. A definite attitude of progress is necessary to 
prevent stagnation. The spirit of our traditions must 
remain the same but the body must be altered with 
further development and construction. One excellent 
example of this is the American Constitution. Although 
its fundamental principles of "life, liberty, and the pur- 
suit of happiness" should always be sustained, never- 
theless many of its feel that much is faulty and out- 
worn in this document. Thus Mr. Smith did not wish 
us to fall into dependency upon the work of our alumni. 
The president of the Senior Class also insisted on a 
policy of progress and also one of "carrying on the 
good work." 

Whether these plans have been fulfilled or have 
been so much talk we cannot say for a while vet. Per- 
haps we have built and "carried on!" Perhaps we have 
only hung motionless. Mr. Smith will tell us, maybe, 
three months from now in our next opening.

WHO'S WHO AND WHAT'S WHAT 

"Ladies and Gentlemen, we are honored this evening hy the presence of several celehrities. 
I shall mention just a few of the most famous. The first on my list is Miss Elizabeth Reed 
White, foremost facial surgery expert. She noseher stuff ! Sitting, or should I say reclining", 
next to her, is Miss Helen Walcott, a living example of her own success with permanent waves. 
On her right are the two famous grils whom you all know — the Misses Howe and Gerhard, 
the most successful graduates of the National Correspondence School. After devoting several 
years to their studies, they both graduated with Masters' Degrees in "How to be Popular. '" 
The tall blonde of the group is Miss Annie M. Mason, who won distinction by learning the 
art of driving - in one week of seven (7) days. "Smoothness and acceleration" is her slogan, 
and her car bears the scars of many a victorious encounter. The young lady with the natural 
auburn curls is Miss Bee Burlingham, the famous specialist in collisions (chiefly between 
radiators and knees). Next to her we have Miss J. D. Hill, famous modiste, and a perfect 
example of "How to Make your Clothes last a Lifetime." The travel twins, nee Fulton and 
Ruffner, are living demonstrations of "What Travel can do for the Run-Down." There we 
have the noted authoress, Miss Publius Street, who has recently written an essay on the subject, 
"Pompeiian Pups, and Why I like Spaghetti." The biggest surprise is Miss Mary Cushman, 
who is a perfect example of "How to do things in a Big Way," as is evidenced by the success 
she has attained in demonstrating Mademoiselle Teny's reducing machine. 

"Give these little girls a big hand, boys!"

ACT I 
Overture — Study Hall sounds and Dunlap noises of Junior origin. 

( Curtain ) 
The Scene is laid in Dunlap before Exams. 

Enter a lot of Juniors, all called by odd Japanese names such as Ju-Ju, 
which there isn't room here to print. 
Chorus — 

If you want to know who we are 
We're the Juniors at North Shore. 
Solo — A hopeless Junior I, a thing of flunks and failures. 
Another — 

Flere's a pretty mess 

In a week or less 

I shall have the bitter knowledge 

That I cannot go to college. 

Witness my distress ! 

Enter Mrs. Gundlach followed by Mr. Smith and Mr. Taylor.

19— MIRROR 30 

Mrs. Gundlach— 

Our great P. D. Smith, virtuous man, 
When he to rule our school began 
Resolved to try a plan whereby 
Young men might learn some Latin 
So he decreed — 
Mr. Smith— 

From every boy and girl obedience I expect, 
I'm the principal of this school — 
Mr. Taylor— 

And I'm his Math, teacher-elect 

A more humane Math teacher never did in North Shore exist. 

To nobody's second 

I'm certainly reckoned 

A true philanthropist. 
It is my very humane endeavor to make to some extent 

Each asinine brain a perfect mine of brilliancy and wit. 
Chorus — 

And in this test 
We'll do our best 
Exactly as he says. 

Exeunt all but Juniors. 
Enter Mmc. Stoughton 
Solo by same — 

Young man despair, likewise go to 
For CherTommy you cannot do 
You're "beaucoup Fou," I'm sorry for you 
You very imperfect tranlationer. 
Junior Solo — 

And I have loafed for a year or nearly 
To learn that that poem, which I don't remember 
This day to Miss Gilbert must be recited. 
Another Solo — 

At a desk in a school room a suff'ring youth squirmed 

Murmuring "Dolor, doloris, doloro," 
"My lad, that's not right," his stern teacher affirmed, 

"It goes 'Dolor, doloris, clolori'." 
"Is it weakness of intellect, sonny," she cried, 
"Or sufficient attention which you've not applied?" 
With a shake of his head he despairingly cried — 

"Oh, Dolor, doloris, doloro." 
He tugged at his hair to think better, I trow 

Gasping "Dolor, doloris, doloro," 
And a cold perspiration bespangled his brow 

"Oh Dolor, doloris, doloro." 
He sputtered and coughed as he stammered the phrase, 
Then he stared from his feet to the book in a daze 
And a twittering remark his companions did raise 

Whispering "Dolor, doloris, doloro." 
Now I'm sure that that youth flunked his next term exam 

Writing "Dolor, doloris, doloro. 
And it must have been useless for him just to cram 

Learning "Dolor, doloris, dolori," 
For when the time came to proclaim all he knew 
The hounded refrain he in vain tried to sue, 

21 



19 — MIRROR — 30 



Jt had fled from his brain in the heat of the stew, 
He wrote "Dolor, doloris, doloro." 

All trump upstairs to exams, visibly dejected by the anticipation 

of the coming event. 

( Curtain) 

ACT II 

Overture — Really very nice, hut drowned out by more noises of unmistakable 

origin. 

Scene — Study Hall before Exams. 

A group of Juniors is revealed sitting at the tables, getting ready for the exams. 

Enter Mr. Jones. 
Chorus — 

Behold the chief examinationer. 
A personage of awesome rank and title, 
A dignified and potent teacher 
Whose functions are particularly vital. 
Mr. Jones — 

As every term it happens that some victims must be found, 
I've got a little list, I've got a little list 
Of study hall offenders who I wish were underground 
And who never would be missed — 

Enter a few more Junior girls — late, as usual. 
Chorus — 

Comes a train of little ladies 
Hoping for at least a C. 
Each a little bit afraid is 
Wondr'ing what her marks can be. 

Three little maids to school we come, 
In all our lessons we are dumb. 
Filled to the brim with lots of fun, 
Three little maids from school — 
To Mr. Jones — So please you, sir, we much regret if we haive failed — 
Enter Miss Gilbert followed by a lone and pleading Junior. 
Miss Gilbert- 
No, in spite of all rogation 
Such a theme I'll not discuss. 
And on no consideration 
Will I lightly pass you thus. 
The Junior — 

My brain it teems with English themes 
Both good and new, just made for you. 
Chorus (Waiting for exams) — 

With aspect stern and gloomy stride 
We sit to learn how you decide. , 
Don't hesitate to tell the tale, 
A dreadful fate awaits us if we fail. 
Mr. Jones — 

On these subjects you're all of you 

Dumb, dumb, dumb. 
Your answers though mam- 
Are not worth a penny, 
I think you had better sue — 

Cumb, cumb, cumb 
And be Juniors again in the fall. 



19— MIRROR — 30 



Chorus — 

Sit with visage pale 

Leaning on your desk 

Wond'ring if we'll fail. 

Too afraid to ask ! 
Solo— Enter Mrs. Childs. 

Ah ! Pray make no mistakes, as you do in class, 

Be very wide awake, and you'll all pass 
Chorus — 

Let us try to write some French 

Though the hours are surely creeping. 

The bell rings, the suspended atmosphere is dispersed and the students 
Chorus — begin to talk among themselves. 

See how the profs their marks allot 

For A is passing, B is not, 

Though B is brighter, I daresay — 
Solo — 

The exams that we take in the spring tra-la 

Have a great deal to do with our fate. 
Another Solo — 

At a desk in old North Shore a Jun-i-or sat, 
Singing "Amo, oh amas, oh amat." 

And I said to him, "Little boy, why must you sit?" 
Singing, "Amo, of amas, oh amat." 
"It is weakness of intellect, boy friend," he cried. 
Solo (addressed to Mrs. Childs) — 

Do you fancy that I've labored long enough? 

Information I'm requesting on a subject most distressing. 

Is three hours spent on Latin long enough? 
Chorus (leaving) — 

With joyous shout and ringing cheer — 

And that's what we mean when we say or we sing, 

Oh ! bother, exams that we take in the spring — 

( Fast Curtain ) 

Solo in front of curtain instead of encore due to the fact that the cast has 
gone home immediately after the production. 

When I walk about the campus and I take a look around 
I've got a little list, I've got a little list 

Of pupils of the school, and teachers too, I've found 

Who never would be missed, who never would be missed. 

There's the boy who throws the spitballs when you're running study hall 

Then asks you foolish questions that you do not know at all. 
All teachers who arrange it so you feel just like an ass 

By saying "please go on from there" when you're whispering in class, 

And friends who take wet towels and flip you with a twist, 

They'd none of them be missed. They'd none of them be missed. 

The prof who tells you coolly that your answer is the bunk, 
I've got him on the list, I've got him on the list. 

And those who make up college boards so everyone will flunk, 
Thev never would be missed, they never would be missed. 

All profs who give long lessons that it's better not to shirk. 

Then returning from vacation say "Let's get down to work." 

The kids who throw banana peels on our gymnasium floor, 

The Seniors who at sandwich time take second and cry "No more!" 

The desperate dux of lunch line who expells you with his fist, 
I don't think he'd be missed. I'm sure he'd not be missed.

THE ALUMNAE REPORT 

( Answers from the Class of 'Z2 on being asked to tell their doings ) 

I am sure that anyone who has led as good and beautiful a life as I have is 
very fortunate. During my twenty years as prison wardeness I have watched one 
hundred executions, taken part in hasty hangings and the knife for fifteen guillo- 
tines. Lovingly, Nancy Thomas. 

1 have recently established a school for rambunctious voungsters. I am so 
very interested in guiding each little sinner towards a useful life. Do come and 
visit me. Barbara Hobart. 

I do hope you will be able to come and visit me at the Zoo. Of course I am 
not in the Zoo, no indeed ! I merely help the animals solve their little individual 
problems. I take such pleasure in being some use in the world. 

Jean O'Brien. 

Well, well ! T just got back from a trip around the world in a rubber ball. I 
got the rolling fever and I couldn't resist it. Patty Calkins. 

My life has been spent in quiet seclusion, digging for "arrongonianic rnerca- 
tontis" in far off Asia. Toodle-Doo, Eleanor Tanney. 



19— MIRROR — 30 

"All the world's a stage and all the men and women merely players." I am 
no doubt one of the best. Come and see me in my latest creation, "Delia Dice." 

Jean Lamson. 

Wearying of my vagabond life, I am spending my old age in a very tall tree 
on the plain of Shinar. Scientists consider me quite a curiosity and come miles to 
see me. D. Ott. 

During these last few years of my beautiful life I have completed a book 
entitled "Little Helps for Savages," dedicated to the nature of wildest Africa, whose 
closest friend I have always been. Evelyn Totman. 

Just a line to say I am continuing my useful work in the Artie, and am helping 
the Polar Bears to reach a higher stage of civilization. Anne Palmer. 

I regret to state that I am at present in jail, because I accidentally put my 
husband in the coffee grinder, alas ! 1 can never drink another cup of coffee. 

B. Ballard. 

Our fondest hope has been realized, we are considered the greatest "Blues 
Singers on Broadway. We are now playing in "Blue Danube." Come and see us. 

Marion Daughaday, Elizabeth Zimmerman. 

Just a note to say that I am a shoemaker and doing very well, thank you. 

Helen Fulton. 

I am a teller of dreams, a weaver of fortunes. My hand holds the fates of 
kings and dynasties. Come to me, ye faithful ! ( and we will have a game of 
Parchesi). Marion Thomas. 

If you should ever come to that odd corner of the world called Peakers' Point 
do stop in at my little refreshment stand. I need customers so badly. Hopefully, 

Barbara Anne Sargent. 

I have had the fortune to revive an ancient occupation. Finding nothing else 
to do I build Pyramids for people who are going to commit suicide. 

D. Schmid. 

Do you like Brussels Sprouts? If you do, come out to my little farm in 
Brazil and I will give one. Briefly, Margaret Freyne.

POEM 
I. 

Our year is up as an Eighth Grade Class, 
Here's hoping we all shall pass, 
And the joys of the Freshmen shall be our reward 
And vou may he sure that we'll never he bored. 

II. 
With a Burley leader to head our class 
And Crilly a shy and winsome lass, 
With the drawings of Harding and music of Sands, 
Comic cartoons of Armstrong and Laird's commands 
We forward will march all in a hand 
For in study is strength and together we'll stand. 

III. 
Now come our athletes, Bersbach and Stern, 
They've a reputation that's hard to earn. 
Give Walcott a nook with a very good book, 
And Bulgar a basket and ball. 
Give Zur Welle a line in a dance. That's fine ! 
And Friedmann in a tank will shine. 
Give Schumann a horse and happy she'll be, 
That leaves Leonard and Bartelme.

A M ERICA IN WINNETKA— 1970 

"Well, well, well, back in Winnetka again. I wonder if our old school is there 
still. Hey, pilot, light on that football field. You can't? Oh, well, fly low and 
I'll jump." Bruce Smith and I, successful stock brokers, jumped out of his aero- 
plane. We walked over to "Doc" Gillies. 

"Well, well, Jim, imagine seeing you here. I flew out here in one of Kaul- 
back's new Aerotaxis. He just got the patent down at St. Louis." 

"If it isn't Bruce Smith and Ed Mills!" ejaculated Gillies. "I hear you two 
went into a brokerage house, buying out Willy Wilder. That's great. Look over 
there. See that tall boy running around the end? Well, that's Charles Ford 
Harding IV. Charles was successful in business, he's now president of Public 
Utilities and Aircraft Corporation. Say, have you heard the news? Durham just 
got a message from Mars on his new radio. Well, so long." 

We walked over and shook hands with the headmaster, Mr. Butz. He told 
us that Daughaday was here in town for the Plumbers' Convention. He was pre- 
siding. He said too, "Mayor Strong will be here soon with ex-President Goodwin 
and Secretary of Farm Relief Flack." 

"What happened to Joe Coambs, Herby ?" asked Bruce. 

"Joey? He became successful in the Chicago Detective Force. But he was 
fired because of a gang war he was mixed up in. Now he's down enjoying winter 
at Little America with Secretary of Crime Beman." 

"Gee," I said, "I bet you Winnetka people feel proud with Sampsell president 
of the Western Hemisphere, don't you?" 

"Anyway we Evanston people feel proud to have Harvey Huston governor of 
the Great Lake region," said Bruce. He looked at his watch and decided we had 
better go. 

We climbed into the cockpit and soon had a bird's eye view of a place that 
brought back pleasant memories — memories of days never again to return. 



A GLANCE INTO AN EIGHTH GRADE 
DOMESTIC SCIENC CLASS 

"What are we going to make, Mrs. Taylor?" 

"Not tapioca pudding! Of all the things to cook must we do that?" said one 
of the girls. Remarks of disapproval are heard, and finally Mrs. Taylor ventures 
to say that the course is taught as she thinks best, and tapioca pudding is a fine des- 
sert if prepared correctly. 

A loud crash is heard as several pans fall out of the cupboard onto the floor. 
Everyone scatters as they know that they shouldn't be around the cupboard until 
later. 

The pudding is prepared, the most serious mistake being that half a cup of 
salt was used in the place of sugar. This was not discovered until the pudding was 
served. 

The dish washing problem then arose. Water was splashed about at random, 
a plate was broken, and several people began to feel ill from the effects of the 
tapioca pudding. 

Two bells echoed throughout the building and once again all was quiet in the 
Domestic Science Room.

OUR COMEDY HIT 

I. 

One most dreadful day we gave a big play. 

The "Comedy of Errors" 'twas called. 

We all made a mess trying to put on our dress. 

I assure you all that up and bold we got, 

We remembered our parts and 

Our play was quite hot 

'Cause we didn't forget them unless we forgot. 

II. 
Our mammas applauded and some teachers clapped 
And maybe a few schoolmates too, 
They may have yelled loud, 
But we know the crowd, 
It was 'cause that dry play was over.

TH E I NSTITUTIO N 

This year the seventh grade, with their remarkable students, founded the most 
remarkable institute that has ever been established for genii. These are some of 
the unusual fetes that our students have accomplished : 

Robert Aldrich invented a machine to make people big. 

David Burt has devised a new and complete course for mastering the art of car- 
tooning in five minutes. 

Mody Butler mastered the art of an athlete. 

Cates invented a new and simplified way to paste in stamps. 

Coleman, with his patent marbles, has just erected a coliseum for marble sheet- 
ing. 

Consulman discovered a new way to keep his history note book up to date. 

Damman found a new way to play the 'cello without the brain. 

Hamill patented an original method in mounting a horse. 

McLeish found out how to argue efficiently. 

Nathen invented a means of eliminating walking. 

dePeyster can play any kind of game with his durable gym shoe. 

Shoemaker patented a new sport, holding a track meet with a pencil. 

Smith uncovered the great secret of the ages, how to shoot paper wads in a 
straight line. 

Sullivan found out how to come to school and still get rest. 

Thomas earned enough money making inventions so that he could get a new 
pair of pants. 

Watson with his new reducing machine grew thin. 



A SHAKE. SPEREAN GRADE MEETING 

There came one day a miracle. The Seventh Grade called a meeting. 

"Hear ye, hear ye, the meeting will now begin," cried Julia Burley. Alas, 
Warren interrupted, "I pray thee when will this be over?" "Alack, alack, there is 
no money," cried Mary Lynde. Up got Patty Peron and declared in a loud voice 
that something must be done. Jean Ericson and Fannie Price were dreaming of 
by-gone days. Up spoke Francis Damman and Joe dePeyster wishing the meeting 
to be adjourned. "Villain, thou lieth," cried Bobby Nathan. All were interrupted 
by George Watson's saxaphone. Then in came John Macy, Hilton Scribner, and 
David Burt crying, "What goeth on here?" "Hear me. Hear me," calleth Jane Par- 
ker, "where are Louise Stein, Mary Trumbull and Barbara Totman ?" "Alas, absent- 
minded again, I dare say," cried Bunty Smith. "We shall then put ourselves in 
Martyrdom and seek them out," declared Bobby Aldrich and Ted Counselman. 
"Thou shrew, 'tis only because they wanton to leave," calleth Caroline Sutherland. 
Then through flyeth a snowball. The guilty persons, Douglas Smith, Billy Cole- 
man followed by Arthur Sullivan were seen making haste to eschew from sight. 
I think I shall not stay any longer and with she and Julia Mason escaped along 
wit.i Phoebe Massey. Scott Thomas, Hugh McLeish, Dudley Cates and Hunt 
Hamill had fallen asleep to the rhythm of Mary Rich's snores. Anon the be'l 
rangeth. Forsooth what a meeting this cryeth Dorothy Wilder. It was a perfect 
"Comedy of Errors."

FIFTH GRADE 

Long ago the Norsemen believed that the world was contained in a huge tree 
which they called Ygdrassel. Up in the branches in beautiful palaces lived the 
Gods. Beyond the great wall that protected Asgard, lay Midgard, the land of men. 
A wide river separated Midyard from Jotenheim, a dreary land of icebergs which 
lay at the roots of the tree. Here lived the fierce Giants, the enemies of the Gods. 
We made this map to show you how the world seemed to the Norsemen.

THE FALL OF TROY 

One morning the Trojans 
looked out on the plain where 
the Greeks had camped and lo 
and behold the Greeks weren't 
there. 

While they were looking 
around to see if they could find 
any signs of them, they found 
one, named Sinon, and they 
asked him whether the Greeks 
were gone forever, and, if so, 
what was the big wooden horse 
over there in the reeds? 

Sinon told them that they 

had finally left and had left a 

horse as an offering to Athene. 

They built it so high that it 

would not pass under the Trojan gates because they did not want it ever to be 

a benefit to Troy. 

So they all got together to decide whether to bring it in or to leave it in the 
reeds, but most of the Trojans were in favor of bringing it into the city. 

They all got to work bringing it in, knocking away the walls to make a hole 
big enough for the horse to pass through. 

Finally they got the horse through and then went to sleep. 

In the middle of the night Sinon got up on top of the wall and beckoned to the 
people on the other side of the wall, opened the gates and all the Greeks came in, 
seized Helen and set fire to Troy. 

And thus the beautiful citv of Troy turned into a black mass of ashes. 




I know of a land, a land far away 
Of Hellas beautiful Hellas. 
I'm longing to be there today 
In Hellas, beautiful Hellas. 
The green grass is growing, 
The blue rivers flowing 



i [ E L L A S 

In Hellas, beautiful Hellas. 

The children are playing 

But I am saying, 

Hellas, oh beautiful Hellas, 

I love that land, that land far away. 

Where I am longing to be today. 



THE SLAYING OF HECTOR 

When Achilles, in his wrath, heard of the death of Patroclus, he called his 
mother Thetis to get his armour. She came back with the finest in the world. When 
he had donned it, he jumped into his chariot and rode to the Greek Army, leading 
it up the plain, killing all the Trojans before him till all were in behind the Walls 
but Hector. Everyone was yelling for him to come in but he did not heed them. 
Meanwhile Achilles was getting nearer. When he drew close enough he jumped 
off his chariot and fought Hector. First, Hector threw his spear, but it did not 
injure Achilles. Then Achilles threw his and it perced Hector's neck so that he 
fell. Then Achilles struck him again so that he was dead. Then Achilles dragged 
Hector around the walls of Troy behind his chariot. So this is how Hector was 
slain.

QUEEN ANNE' LACE 

Dear old winter is here again, 

Hurrah for dear old Winter. 

He carried his white, white hag of snow 

And made the world a giant flower, 

A beautiful Queen Anne's lace. 

It sparkles in the sun, 

The snow comes darting at every bus. 

Faster and faster it goes. 

West wind makes the trees sway everywhere. 

Little Jack Frost is here. 

He has painted pictures everywhere on the window panes, 

Christmas Trees, stars and fairies in fairyland. 

OURSURPRISE 

At eight-thirty this morning the door opened and in walked two boys carrying 
a big box. We ran up to the box, and what do you think it was? Our new pet, 

The monkey. We were so very 
glad. None of us have ever 
taken care of a monkey. We 
danced with joy.

THE 



Every year we have a school 
fair. We took Jenny to the fair. 
There were other animals there 
too, but Jenny won first prize. It 
was a blue ribbon. All the people 
thought she was so funny and 
cute. They played with her. 



JENNY'S WEEK-END 
WITH US 

Jenny went to my house yesterday. 
Oh she was funny. She climbed the 
pipes and frightened Annie. Annie held 
up her hands in surprise when she saw 
Jennie come in the house. She does not 
like monkeys. Annie said, "Um, I'm go- 
ing to leave if that monkey stays." All 
day Jenny stayed out of her cage. All 
night she stayed in her cage. I enjoyed 
her very much, 
too. 



Jenny enjoyed herself

SECOND GRADE 

The Second Grade is studying about Hopi Indians. We have built a pueblo and a 
mesa. A pueblo is an Indian village and a mesa is a hill and a pueblo is on it. To 
make our mesa, first we went over to Mr. Bollinger's with Mr. Dyke and got eleven 
top boards and two cross boards and four short legs and one leg in the middle. 
The pueblo we made out of boxes. We piled them on top of each other to make 
three with ladders from one story to the next. We cut out doors and windows and 
glued on chimneys and made beams out of dowel rods to hold the roof up. We are 
covering our boxes with textone to make them look like adobe. There are clay 
ovens for baking piki bread in front of the pueblo. The maize we planted with Miss 
Wied has grown four inches tall. 

We are weaving rugs and dyeing wool. Brown we dyed with onion skins and 
skins and cockineal bug gave us lavender. We are making pottery and jewelry 
with Indian designs on it. We have katcina doll and Indian drums and many pic - 
tures of Indians. We made two Indian masks. Mrs. Brein taught us Indian sign 
language. First she taught us / and then she taught us "going" and then "home." 
Then we could say, "I am going home." We painted blankets to wear in an Indian 
game. 

Miss Ellison taught us the Indian game. We made two wands and eight tally 
sticks and blue rosettes and green rosettes for the game. Miss Wood taught us two 
Indian songs to sing with the game.

FIRST GRADE 
A DOVE DIARY KEPT BY THE FIRST GRADE 






February 28, 1930 — John went out to the farm and got some hay. He 
brought it into the First Grade room. The hay was wet and cold. We put it in 
a box and put it on the radiator. We went to Morning exercise. When we came 
back we put the box in the cage. We went to lunch. When we came back from 
lunch, the doves were building a nest. 

March 3 — What do you think we found in the nest in the dove's cage this 
morning? Two white eggs. The mother dove laid them. She will have to sit 
on the eggs fifteen days. We hope then she will have two baby doves. We are 
going to try to be very quiet and keep away from the cage. We drew pictures 
of the doves. 

March 5 — Mother dove got hungry. She left the nest. The father sat on 
the eggs to keep them warm. Miss Wied told us how the mother and father 
doves feed the little ones when they hatch. They chew food and then put it down 
into the throats of the baby doves. 

March 7 — We left the cage door open today so the cloves could come out. 
The father jumped out on the chair, but didn't stay long. He went back becouse 
he does not like to leave the mother alone. 

March 10 — In our ."First Grade Weekly" that came out today, we said : 
"The mother dove is sitting on the eggs. She seems very happy. We are happy, 
too." 

March 11 — Some of us made nests and eggs out of clay. 

March 12 — The mother dove turns the eggs very carefully with her bill. She 
stretches her legs and wings. She must get very tired. 

March 13 — Sally brought a hard-boiled egg for the doves. 

March 14 — Joan is the dove committee. This morning she brought a hard- 
boiled egg. 

March 17- 

March 18- 



-We brought some lettuce from the lunch room for the doves. 

-The father and mother dove were both in the nest this morning. 
John brought a hard-boiled egg to school.

VARSITY FOOTBALL — 1929 

Altogether, North Shore may feel justly proud of the 1929 Football team. 
When the season started, the outlook was poor, but bit by bit the team improved 
until at the end of the season a new record had been established — a record of win- 
ning every game and going through a season with the goal line uncrossed at the 
same time. 

NORTH SHORE 18— FRANCIS PARKER 

The first game of the season was played on our field in somewhat muddy 
weather. North Shore kept an advantage throughout the battle, winning a touch- 
down early in the first half and repeating the performance just before the end of 
that period. The second half was largely a punting duel, each team waiting for 
the break. A blocked Parker punt gave us the ball on their thirty-five yard line, 
and from there North Shore rapidly advanced to the third touchdown. The game 
ended without further score. North Shore failed to gain any of the three points 
after touchdown. 

NORTH SHORE 19— RACINE 

Racine College Prep school of Racine furnished North Shore's opponents 
for the second game of the season. The contest was staged on Racine's field under 
good conditions. North Shore's line had improved considerably since the Parker 
game and opened holes for the backs which netted two touchdowns in the first 
half. Racine came back full of pep in the second period, and our team made but 
one touchdown more before the final whistle blew. 

NORTH SHORE 13— MILWAUKEE 

Milwaukee's fast and tricky eleven met defeat on North Shore's field for 
the first time in history this season. North Shore held the lead throughout the 
game, putting over two touchdowns and completing one point after touchdown. 
Milwaukee put up a very hard fight, and nearly scored in the last few minutes with 
an extensive passing attack. It was the hardest game that the team had played 
up to that time. 

NORTH SHORE 7— LATIN 

North Shore suffered a let down after beating Milwaukee and was totally 
enfeebled during the first half of this game against an unexpectedly strong team. 
During the second half, North Shore made the lone score on a forty yard run. 
The game was well fought throughout the second half, but was without spectacular 
performance. 

NORTH SHORE 7— HARVARD 

North Shore played good football to beat our traditional rival, Harvard school, 
by a single touchdown. Although we scored but once, it is generally conceded 
that North Shore won by playing better football than their opponents. The first 
half was very even, Harvard having the edge by making a first down on North 
Shore's eight yard line, but our team held and the half ended without score. North 
Shore was within scoring distance early in the second half, but lost the ball. Sud- 
denly, Captain Ferry broke loose on our own twenty-five yard line and carried 
the ball over for a touchdown. The try for point was successful. Although Har- 
vard opened up a perfect barrage of passes, the game ended without further score.

GIRLS' HOCKEY SEASON OF 1929 

NORTH SHORE 0— ROYCEMORE 3 
The first game of the hockey season took place on October 26 with Royce- 
more, on our field. From the beginning the game proved to be a harder one than 
was anticipated by our team. We were surpassed in speed and vivacity. Although 
we were in our opponents' territory a good part of the time, we failed to make the 
desired goals, while Roycemore seemed to have little difficulty in scoring. 
NORTH SHORE 4— CHICAGO LATIN 2 
On November 2, the hockey team met the Latin team on our field, and it was 
determined to win. The first few minutes of play showed that the two teams had 
almost equal strength, speed, and skill. The ball rallied between the twenty-five 
yard lines for the better half of the game. The first half ended with North Shore 
in the lead, by a score of one to nothing. The second half started out with a great 
rush by the visitors, which ended in a goal. This latter period sped along rapidly, 
Latin scoring two points to our three, which gave us our one and only victory of 
the season. 

NORTH SHORE 0— KEMPER HALL 2 
The Kemper game, played on their field, proved to be a sloppy one, on the 
part of both teams. We should have had the advantage, as we have been playing 
hockey much longer than our adversaries. They managed to drive in two goals, 
while we could put the ball any place but in their goal. While we were in their ter- 
ritory, Kemper played an extremely defensive game, practically their whole team 
acting as goalguards. The game was not fought as vigorously as it should have 
been. 

NORTH SHORE 1— CARL SHURZ 1 
As a climax to our season, our hockey team was tied during the last few min- 
utes of play by the Shurz team from down town. The game was ragged ; our 
players showed a little more skill, but we lacked the vigor necessary to drive in 
the goals. We had the ball in their territory most of the time, but there was no 
strength back of our attempted shots for the goal. 

BOYS VS. GIRLS 

On November 25th the great annual contest in hockey was held between the 
boys and the girls. It was a battle between the dexterity and skill of the girls, 
and the speed and strength of the boys. Due to the oncoming twilight, the ball, 
during most of the second half, was all but discernible, but the boys managed to 
see it well enough to score a 2-1 victory over the fighting Amazons. 

THE FOOTBALL DINNER 

One of the most pleasing features of this year's Football season was the din- 
ner held on December third, at the Indian Hill Club. Through the efforts of Mr. 
Wells the dinner was arranged on a moment's notice, in the absence of Mr. Ferry 
and Mr. Greeley, the fathers of the present and next year's football captains. 

The attendance was considerably larger than that of previous years. In addi- 
tion to the members of the squad and their fathers, there were several alumni, 
also with their fathers, and several men who took an active part in the building of 
North Shore.

From these men and the alumni we learned some of the difficulties that con- 
fronted the school and its teams in the earlier days, and could see how much their 
work contributed to the earlier conditions of the present. 

Mr. Smith, as toastmaster, was a big factor in making the evening a success. 
Besides introducing the speakers, he alternated the humorous and serious as only 
he can do it. 

The 1929 and 1930 captains were called upon for history and prophecy, while 
their fathers, Mr. Ferry and Mr. Greeley, were asked to reinforce those remarks. 
Mr. Anderson then made the keynote spech of the evening, in which he paid a 
compliment to the 1929 squad for its willingness and co-operative spirit, and 
showed how the teams of previous years had helped build up the spirit that has 
become part of North Shore. 

At the conclusion of the dinner and the speeches, Mr. Smith announced that 
Santa Claus had arrived earlier than usual and had left with him a bronze plaque 
which was to signalize the achievement of the 1929 squad. After displaying the 
plaque he added that the donor had placed a fund in his hands which would provide 
similar tablets to signalize outstanding efforts of classes, groups or teams in future 
years. He expressed the conviction that the practice of recognizing co-operative 
success rather than individual performance would become a North Shore tradition 
and spoke of the example set by the 1929 squad in preferring to receive their letters 
from Mr. Anderson and not from the football captain in Morning Ex. 

The meeting closed with "O'er the Fields." 

MINOR FOOTBALL TEAMS 

LIGHTWEIGHTS 

This year the lightweight football team had a good season. They were de- 
feated but tied. The team on the whole worked hard to master fundamental de- 
tails. This is the reason for victories and tie scores which the lights brought in for 
North Shore. 

The second team played a strong Skokie team and lost by a decisive score. 
Mr. Wilder coached the lightweights for the first time. May he have even greater 
success in the years to come. 

MIDDLEWEIGHTS 
The Middleweight football team had a very successful season. The first game 
was against Skokie. North Shore proved to be the stronger team that day. The 
score was 27-0. In the middle of the season the heavier boys moved to the Heavy- 
weight team. The Middles scored another victory 27-0. The third game was lost 
by a score of 18-7. The next week was spent in good hard practice for its last 
game. The Middles won 26-6. Mr. Millet coached the Middleweights. The suc- 
cess of the squad was due to the cooperation between the team and the coach. 

HEAVYWEIGHTS 

The heavyweight football season of 1929 was only fair. It was held back 
by the handicap of inexperience. The Heavies won two games and lost two. The 
game with Skokie was lost, 19-0. "The ship hadn't found itself." The new players 
had not adjusted themselves to playing on a heavier team. With the addition of a 
few boys from the middleweight team the players assumed a different spirit and 
brought home a close victory of 14-13. 

North Shore won the third game 13-0. Skokie won the last game 13-7. Mr. 
Taylor coached the Heavies this year. The interest in the school taken by the 
faculty is clearly shown in the case of the three coaches, Mr. Wilder, Mr. Millet, 
and Mr. Tavlor.

1929-30 BOYS' BASKETBALL 

The increasing number of basketball players has made it necessary to divide the major 
squad into groups, the Varsity, Light-Heavies, and Lightweights. 

Though the Lightweight team only won three out of six games, it was known for its fast 
passing. 

The Light-Heavies consisted of players too heavy for the Lightweight team and with 
not enough experience to be on the Varsity. Though this squad had no big games to play its 
value to both the Lights and Varsity is inestimable. 

The Varsity squad has had a puzzling season. With hard work a fairly good team de- 
veloped from raw material. The first game was lost by a very small margin. As the season 
rolled on, the defeats more often were determined by very close scores. The continual occur- 
rence of close defeat makes one question, "Why?" In drawing conclusions lack of confidence and 
that last minute "drive" seem to be factors which caused our many defeats. 

On the 28th of December the annual Alumni game took place. While the light hearted 
alumni gathered in the balcony of the gym to give their moral support, the North Shore-ites 
contemplated reticently the final score. But the expected massacre never came. Late hours 
had proved to be the master over Foule, Wells, Dean, McKeowen and Alschuler. The Alumni 
won the game only by four points. 

MINOR BASKETBALL. TEAMS 

The Lights had a very successful team this year. Out of nine games they lost two and 
won seven. They used the quick breaking offense and displayed strong defensive work. The 
will to win which the Lightweights obviously possessed is the secret of their success. 

The Middles experienced a successful year, winning" seven out of nine games. Most of 
the games they won were determined by a high score on account of their outstanding ability 
to shoot baskets. Throughout the season this organization used good team work, no one 
person starring, but every man playing equally well. 

The Heavies were more equally matched with their Skokie opponents and thus afforded 
several exciting games to the cheering bodies on the sides. Thy played nine games and won 
five and tied one. 

GIRLS' BASKETBALL SEASON 

RESULTS OF THE GAMES 

North Shore 29 Carl Schurz 27 

North Shore - 35 Marywood 18 

North Shore 35 Kemper Hall 41 

North Shore 63 Starrett 14 

North Shore 46 Roycemore 48 

North Shore 27 Latin 18 

The Girls' Varsity basketball team played six games this season, victorious in four. The 
season has been more completely filled up with games than ever before. 

The first game of the season was, perhaps, the most exciting game (at least for those 
playing) of the season. As the score signifies, the game was close, fought between two teams 
equal in strength. 

The Marywood game brought out nothing unusual, a game not particularly close or fast. 
The Kemper game played at Kenosha proved to be a thrilling contest. North Shore dis- 
played not so much speed, yet good passing. 

Kemper used a practically insuperable line play. A disadvantage lay in the fact that the 
Kemper gym is a trifle small in comparison to the girls' gym. The play sped up, after our 
team accustomed itself to its surroundings. 

Nothing exciting arose out of the Starrett game. It was characterized by the good passing 
of our team and good guarding by our guards. 

The Roycemore game — ah, quite a contrast to the Starrett game. Roycemore was fast 
and their forwards were sharpshooters for the basket. North Shore gained their points at in- 
tervals, while Roycemore ran up long scores at a time. This made the game seem less close 
than the score shows. 

The final game with Latin played on the boys' gym floor was an ordinary game. Play did 
not speed along to make an interesting or exciting spectacle. 

THE ATHLETIC BANQUET 

This year the High School Girls inaugurated a new custom — that of having an Athletic 
Banquet for all sports, in place of the traditional Hockey Spread. The banquet was held on 
Saturday, March twenty-second, at six o'clock. As an experiment, I should say it was a suc- 
cess, and worth continuing another year. 

After much hesitating the meal began. We were allowed to taste the food before the 
speakers began. Mr. Smith, followed by this year's captains of the hockey and basketball 
teams, spoke. After a few more mouthfuls of "food" Miss Fogg, our referee, told us what 
she liked about the hockey and basketball teams of North Shore. Possibly it was too much 
for us to hear. Miss McFall spoke last, reading passages from a book. We completed the 
evening by singing "Wake The Echoes."

FACULTY 

The collector of data regarding teachers' histories is as hard put 
to it as Diogenes with his lantern. He meets on all sides modesty 
and even taciturnity. If he does find a strictly honest person, it is 
with regret, for he, like other reporters, is looking for a good story. 

There follow some tales of the wandering of this hypothetical 
Diogenes. Some years ago his lantern lit up a room of a dignified 
old house in Litchfield, Connecticut. The sound of sleigh bells and 
the shouts of skiers came into the warm room, where Mr. and Mrs. 
Childs talked of the activities of the winter — of their pupils in the 
Litchfield High School, of the interesting members of the winter 
colony among whom were Mr. E. H. Sothern and Mrs. Julia Mar- 
lowe. Perhaps the talk was of Canada (Mrs. Childs' early home), of 
Bates College or of graduate work at Yale or Chicago. Perhaps her 
travels and sojourning in Italy and Greece were already in the wind. 

On another side of the continent about that time a young girl 
with two older brothers stood in a street watching the cattle brought 
to town from the neighboring hills. A mischievious Mexican boy, 
coming up from behind, seized her, placing her upon the back of a 
goat. There she rode in the midst of the thundering herd through 
the town, until a rescue could be effected. Not long before she had 
seen a stampede of cattle in the same street. This happened in 
Phoenix, Arizona, and was probably the dawn of Miss McFall's be- 
lief in the necessity for athletics. She tells us that running away 
from Indians was the chief skill developed by the boys of the town. 

Miss Wied has been an industrious traveler. Besides teaching 
in Florida and in the west, she has seen much of Northern Europe, 
in company with Miss Rood, and has watched remnants of the 
Alaskan icebergs plunge thundering into the Pacific. She knows the 
tale they tell at Skagway of "Soapy" Smith, desperate gambler of 
gold-rush days, long sought by the government, finally killed. The 
officer who shot him was at the same moment laid low himself, but 
the perpetrator of the murder was never discovered. 

Madame Stoughton broke all records we know of for interna- 
tional travel. Her childhood was spent in England, but she lived 
and studied in both Germany and France. She has traveled in Italy, 
Switzerland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. She holds degrees of 
many kinds, one from the Sorbonne in Paris. She has relations in 
many European countries, a fact that makes war even more deplorable 
to her than it seems to some of us who do not realize its full sig- 
nificance. She is justly proud of her association with people of so 
many different nationalities and follows with great interest, as indeed 
most of us do, all movements, towards world peace. 

One at least of our number was the proud possessor, during her 
youth, of a black mammy. Mrs. Sands lived on a Southern planta- 
tion, in Tennessee. Her family moved later to Columbia, South 
Carolina. She attended the State University there, then taught in 
Columbia, and later in the Chicago Latin School. 



63 



19— MIRROR — 30 



Mrs. Sands was one of the three original, or as she says "charter" members of the 
faculty now teaching with the school. The others as you know, were Mr. Smith and Mrs. 
Childs. During the first year arrived Miss Musson. The second year Miss Hale and 
Mr. Bollinger joined the staff. 

About one-third of the teachers at North Shore were "born and raised" either in the 
immediate vicinity of Chicago or in the Middle West. Mr. Taylor spent his boyhood on 
an Indiana farm and attended Earlham College, as did Mrs. Taylor, but his master's de- 
gree comes from Columbia. Wisconsin is the native state of Mr. Dyke as well as Miss 
Wied. Mr. Grinnell's' home and educational ramblings are traced through Michigan, the 
State University being his Alma Mater. 

Approaching Chicago in his Plane, Diogenes might have seen Miss Gilbert poring 
over the books at Rockford College or later at the University of Chicago, whither she 
came, bored with her Columbia Master's degree. She liked the Park School in Buffalo, 
but the chances are that she will stay at North Shore for a while since she is here sur- 
rounded by her favorite animals — Dulce and the Ninth Grade boys. 

Miss Rood was brought up in Chicago suburbs but seemed to relish her surroundings 
so little that she contrived to see a good deal of England, France, Germany, Denmark, 
Sweden, Norway, and Kalamazoo, Michigan. In 1929 she and Miss Wied attended the 
New Era Fellowship Conference at Elsinore, about which Mr. Smith has reported with 
such graphic details. Mr. Riddle was of that goodly company, and like the rest involun- 
tarily breaks into Danish when speaking of his experiences. Perhaps his years of work 
in the International Center at Hull House accounts for this fact. 

Mrs. Brcin studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and at other Art Schools. In 
this year, her ninth at North Shore, she believes that the children are doing better than 
ever. The Sxith Grade exercise on Egypt seems to warrant that belief. 

Before getting any training as a teacher, Miss Fargo taught five grades in two rooms 
of a country school in Michigan — a stage of her life she reviews with amazement if not 
horror. Later she did settlement work at Christopher House in Chicago. 

The debt we owe to the Francis Parker school is obvious when we realize that Mr. 
Smith was a student, or, most certainly, a respected member of the student body there. 
After graduating from Harvard and teaching at the Hill School (where his evenings were 
spent teaching to rows of empty seats in preparation for the morning Math lesson) he 
returned to the Francis Parker School as a teacher. After his wartime service he joined 
a new venture of which our present plant and school activities are the cargo. A "flowing 
sail" to the ship and a "long trick" to our pilot! 

At least two other faculty members have taught at the Francis Parker school. Miss 
Fargo and Mr. Bollinger. 

Our most versatile American traveler is Mr. Wilder who was educated, among other 
places, at Antioch College, and claims to have been domiciled in twenty-three towns and 
cities. The unsympathetic critic may ask why he should find it necessary to move so 
often, but will discover that he is a minister's son. 

Mr. Corkran says that his general greenness is due to his having lived for 14 years, 
and those the most impressionable, in the Green Mountain State. Like Mr. Jones, he 
graduated from Wesleyan. Not content with a Master's degree at Flarvard, he aspired to 
greater heights, climbing above to the austere summit of Helvellyn in the English Lake 
Country. 

The history of Mr. Jones is shrouded in secrecy. Evidently he prefers sending question- 
naires to answering them. Rumor hath it he has taught in as many cities as Mr. Wilder 
has had to move away from. Caldwell, Idaho, the Ojai Valey in Southern California, New 
York State, Indiana, the University School in Chicago, have him enrolled as principal, 
teacher, or dean. This we gather from friends who have penetrated his disguise. 

Diogenes plane is flying westward, and will soon circle the planet. He pauses in Cali- 
fornia, above the scene of Miss Carey's childhood peregrinations. Our second grade teacher 
traveled a long way to teach in the Winnetka Public Schools. Now she has moved on 
again, an infinitesimal way, but a vital disctance to us.

Miss Griffin's year in Germany should be the subject of a longer treatise. Her en- 
thusiasm for the new education there has been transferred to us all. We should like to 
have shared her experience. 

The home of Mile. Jacob is in Paris. She holds a "Certificat" from the Acadamie at 
Paris. England, Spain and Africa are known to her, and she tells how she learned the 
geography of Africa. Years ago her father penetrated the jungles and plains of the French 
Congo. Today, over the ground he surveyed for that purpose, a railroad is being built, 
and the cross of the Legion d'Honneur has been awarded him. Mile. Jacob has visited 
her sisters in the province of Senegal on the West coast of Africa. Her brother is at 
Rano, in Nigeria, and she boasts an aunt in Tunis. No wonder she can draw freehand 
maps of the whole continent of Africa. 

Miss Montgomery threatens to write a book on mountain summits, but remembers 
how frequently, as from the Matterhorn. the view is obscured and the chief sensation of 
the climb that of fatigue or hunger. 

The music department boasts of a high percentage of Easterners. Miss Wood, from 
the house of the Waltham Watch, is a graduate of Radcliffe. At the Semi-Centennial 
celebration of her college she was the soloist with the Boston Symphony and the com- 
bined Harvard and Radcliffe Glee clubs. She is fond of picnics and water fights. 

Mr. Landers, whose ascent is not traceable to any one geographical neighborhood, 
has also become famous outside the bounds of the school. Not only has he helped carry- 
on the Gilbert and Sullivan tradition here, but he, like Miss Hamilton has had a success- 
ful appearance before a Chicago audience. Such a trio of voice, violin and piano all in the 
department is not to be scoffed at. 

The second noted member of the faculty infantry (second only to Mr. Landers) is 
Mr. Millet. He is believed to hold the record for dinner invitations, though he refuses to 
divulge the number. He and his companion-in-arms, Mr. Landers, spent four years in the 
vicinity of Boston, in a well-known institution from which they obtained an honorable 
discharge. Their Alma Mater was Harvard. 

Before going to Smith College, Miss Hale, another Easterner, lived on a large dairy 
farm in Massachusetts. The West, the South, and unnamed countries of Europe are 
charted, but too vaguely for our purposes, on her travel map. Aside from teaching at the 
Chicago Latin School and at Kemper Hall, Miss Harvey has not divulged the story of her 
previous existence and one must guess of the other wanderings which should go down in 
the annals of the faculty. 

Mrs. Grundlach is a graduate of Northwestern, as is Miss Fuller. The secretary oc- 
casionally turns longingly towards the West in midwinter. Mrs. Greeley, formerly a con- 
firmed Easterner, now seems to be settled permanently in the vicinity of Chicago. She is 
at present chief sponsor of the women's hockey movement, being president of the North 
Shore Association. 

Of all the silent workers on the faculty. Miss Bacon's activities perhaps reach the 
farthest. Canvas under her hands becomes a stained glass window on short notice. A 
cock that once strutted beside a cabbage leaf in her farmyard overlooking Lake Michigan 
finds his way with no apparent difficulty to one of the display rooms in the Art Institute. 

Two years ago Miss Radcliffe taught at the Bennett School in Milbrook, New York. 
This knowledge is not necessary, however, to prove her a specialist in her line. Earlier 
experience was acquired at a school in North Dakota. From what she says of the stu- 
dents there it appears that one or two of our grades could show even the gamblers' 
youngsters a thing or two about noise. 

Miss Ellison and another member share the experiences of a summer in Michigan 
when we were very young. Hard manual labor, accidental fall in the river when swim- 
minge was taboo because of the dangerous current, are memories sunk in oblivion. 

Mrs. Droegemueller has broken all records, in breaking an ankle and an elbow during 
the year. These terms are not strictly medical, but the reporter must have his story, and 
certainly it sounds no more than equal to the inconvenience and discomfort suffered. 

It would take all the brawn of the football team to extract from the Andersons their 
life stories. Thus, moving with a force, however irresistable, the reporter's plane crashes 
against an immovable wall and so farewell.

Mr. Landers: "Yes, the diction is just perfect, and your entrances so nice!" 

Miss Radcliff e : "You never dropped a single final consonant!" 

Mr. Surrette : "It reminded me so much of my front door at home " 

The Cast: "The properties and costumes just suit us !"

TROIS-TROIS-ISM 

( Pronounced twah-twah) 

There may yet be some minority in this universe which is not conversant in 
the purpose, means, and high endeavors of Trois-Trois. For the benefit of this 
minority we set forth our creed as follows : To humanize the world ; to embrace 
all creeds, sects, and all nations in a universal brotherhood ; to promote the highest 
ideal of citizenship and civic duty throughout this vast universe of man. 

To carry out its purposes, Trois-Trois has a beautiful system of organiza- 
tion : The three charter members, who established Trois-Trois more than a year 
ago, constitute the governing body or "Maxami." The two "brothers" who aided 
the early achievements of Trois-Trois have become associate members with the 
highest privileges. Honorary Exemplary Memberships have been granted as 
especial marks of favor to special "august mentors." The largest proportion of 
Trois-Trois is composed of Regular Members. 

The Royal Incantator regularly performs the proper rites and reads the proper 
poems on the special occasions.

FIRE DRILL RE P ORT 

(By Conscientious Reporter) 

Chairman of Committee : 

"Since Walter Strong is bigger than I am I'll let him explain this plan of get- 
ting out of Dunlap." 

W. S. — (Pointing to diagrams on blackboard or on posters, one large one up- 
side down and the others too small to lie read ) . 

"It is all marked out on this plan so it is very simple. The people in this room 
count ten, then go through this door and turn it over in their minds. While doing 
this they go into this room through that door and come out by that door." 

George Hale (interrupting) — "Now why do you go into that room at all? 
You have them going in and going right out again." 

W. S. ( standing on his head to read the upside down plan) — "Oh, yes ! That's 
so they can get their sandwiches to eat." 

Chorus — Oh yes ! 

W. S. — Now the people in this room go out by this right hand door. There 
is no left hand door in this room so all lefthanded people will have to jump out the 
window. We didn't see any other way to work it out." 

C. Haas — "Mr. President, why couldn't the left handed people go out back- 
wards ?" 

W. S. looks around behind the blackboard to ask the Chairman of the Commit- 
tee what about that? Chairman tears his hair. W. S. says they will have to have 
another committee meeting. Then he steps up to the President of Town Meeting 
belligerently and moves that the report of the fire drill committee be accepted, as 
he brandishes his clenched fist. Six '.'seconds" to the motion in the back row of 
meeting sue immediately. 

President — "It has been moved and seconded that the report of the Fire Drill 
Committee be accepted. Any discussion?" 

G. Hale — Yes! I want to know what we're going to do in our room in case 
of fire. We belong to the 350 First Families on the North Shore and our lives 
are valuable. We can't stay in the room and burn. 

I. Odell — Can't you go up through the roof? Mr. Riddle has the Seventh 
Grade Classes in that room and they raise the roof every day anyhow. 

After a few suggestions from the Seventh Grade the meeting adjourns.

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES 

VACATION FAIR 

The Vacation Fair was as interesting as usual, and perhaps more carefully 
organized this year than previously. 

Of course" the food went fast. Eager mobs fought around the candy counter 
and the ice cream booth, but when they had eaten their fill, they were glad to go 
the rounds, looking at the various exhibits. There were photographs, folders, bright 
flags and foreign curiosities in the travel booth, aeroplane models, costumed dolls 
and collections in their respective booths, besides the pets, dogs, cats, parrots, and 
even guinea pigs scattered around the gym. The Chamber of Horrors drew its 
accustomed numbers and all in all everyone seemed to be enjoying himself thor- 
oughly. 

This fair was an improvement over last year, inasmuch as everyone cooper- 
ated in bringing interesting things and arranging his own booth attractively. If 
everyone does his own share well, the whole effect is bound to be good. 

THE VAUDEVILLE 1929 

On the evening of Friday, November 22nd, the "Vaudeville Special," Train 
No. 1929, left Track 5 for its annual Entertainment Tour. The train was very 
full, in fact there was not an empty seat in it. At 8 o'clock, when the conductor 
announced the departure of the train, the passengers came out of the Front Plat- 
form and took their seats. 

The first stop was Pittsburg, where a group of Musical riveters played some 
jazz selections. Thence the train went to Winnetka, where the faculty of a certain 
High School presented a farce of the early morning hours in the School Office — 
which performance was immediately added to the long list of successes scored 
dramatically by the faculty. Other stops were : Paris, where the artists of the 
"Kick and the Dance" did their stuff; Bombay, India, where an Idol's eye was 
stolen and the revenge duly taken in pantomime. And then, to pass the time 
between India and England away, two passengers (from the next car) gave 
some vocal renditions interspersed with wise cracks (i.e., humorous quips) which 
amused the passengers immensely. Then the special proceeded to England where 
Mr. John Macy sang some Gilbert and Sullivan songs, his singing being as usual 
— excellent. The passengers were then whisked to Podunk Junction, Iowav, 
where a "Bunch of the Boys" gave an extremely amateur Amateur Night per- 
formance, which provided good amusement to the athletic-minded, also the un- 
athletic-minded. The next stops were : Vienna, where a music-teacher gave a 
recital much to the disconcertation (?) of the pupils; Palestine, where Samson 
collapsed a temple with stunning effect ; the Twin Cities, where two girls played 
two pieces on the ditto number of pianos ; Alabama, where the Cotton Pickers 
clogged — and then again the passengers from the other car told the tale of Little 
Red Riding with a very uplifting effect on the Passengers. And then the High 
School Girls in the third car forward got encouraged and sang some songs (and 
danced) of their school life. Back to Pittsburg the train whizzed to find the 
riveters in a more pensive mood — and finally some steel-workers, in lieu of their 
football season activities, sang some Football Songs (much to the unrest of the 
Carnegie foundation ) . 

Slowly the train came to a stop, in Winnetka again, and the passengers went 
to the third car forward and danced to the tunes of a good orchestra until quit- 
ting time, when the conductor had to stop festivities.

CHRISTMAS 1929 

Santa Claus paid his annual visit to North Shore at the Christmas party on 
Decemher 18th. He was delighted with all the wonderful toys which were on dis- 
play for him, that the boys and girls of the school had worked on for two weeks. 
In fact we had such a lot of toys, games and books this year that there was only 
room for about two-thirds of them in the gymnasium. Santa talked to us all for 
a few minutes and then he sat down and watched the lower school dance with the 
upper school. He was greatly entertained and laughed heartily when the faculty 
got all mixed up and some of them forgot part of their dance. It was great fun 
and just before Santa left he presented gifts to each grade of the lower school and 
wished us all a Merry Christmas. 



THE DANCE 

Early in February it began 

A small and yet unfinished plan. 

The committees were selected. 

Some boys and girls objected. 

The first question we had to decide 

Was from where the money would be payed. 

Each Freshman his pockets had to empty 

And when that was over there seemed to be plenty. 

The committees then began to work, 

And from this job they did not shirk. 

It was going to be a St. Patrick's dance 

And all were preparing for a fine prance. 



VALENTINE PARTY 

On Friday, the fourteenth of February, at Eleven o'clock, the Valentine Party 
was held in the boys' gymnasium. This part}' was sponsored by the first grade who 
gave a little play depicting the well known story of the tarts from Alice in Won- 
derland. The regal procession came in, and the king and queen seated themselves 
on their thrones. The king then said that he would like some tarts ; so the queen 
of hearts made some tarts which were stolen by the knave of hearts. This caused 
much commotion in the court until the thief was found. The king and queen then 
departed accompanied by the court. 

The commoners then participated in dances with each other. All the boys 
and girls had made favors, and upon taking partners, exchanged favors. The danc- 
ing went by grades, and the faculty also partook. Throughout the period the or- 
chestra played and acquitted itself well. The party was a great success, one of the 
best we ever had.

THE SENIOR DANCE 



The Senior class gave the first dance of the year on September 27th, shortly 
after the opening of school. As is the custom, the Seniors made their dance very 
informal. Sporting goods reminiscent of vacation experiences adorned the walls 
and a section of the dance floor. Cold cider was served beneath a vividly striped 
beach-table awning. A widely varied assortment of porch furniture gave a cool 
atmosphere. Patrons of the dance were urgently asked to wear anything pertain- 
ing to their summer activtiies. They responded nobly ; every imaginable type of 
dress and adornment was in evidence. 

The first dance of the year must be one of informality, because newly arrived 
students, fresh from the great outdoors, find it dull at an ordinary school dance. 
Therefore did the Seniors strive to make the first dance not only informal but 
enjoyable, and the multitude which attended and made merry to the vagaries of 
a peerless orchestra seemed to consider their hosts successful. 



THE FRESHMAN DANCE 



On Saturday, March 15, the freshman gave their dance. There was a large 
attendance and all seemed to enjoy it. Tom Brown's snappy orchestra started at 
eight on the dot, the day's work of the freshmen showed up well in their decora- 
tions of green and white paper streamers, giving a tent-like effect. At either 
end the basketball nets were filled with green and silver balloons, while large 
green clover leaves decorated the walls. The orchestra alternated its fast and 
slow tunes well, and people started to dance with the beginning of a piece, which 
is one proof they were enjoying themselves. The refreshments were popular. 
We understand the financial end was run as well as the dance itself. Above all, 
the cooperation of the freshmen made the dance a success.

We have had excellent cooperation this 
year in the dramatic department. Through 
the industry of certain students we have 
been able to add much permanent equipment 
such as steel batons, permanent steps, new 
black velvet curtains and new border 
lights. 

Miss Bacon has worked untiringly on the 
scenery, costumes, wigs and properties. As 
well as Miss Bacon, Mr. Bollinger's efforts 
in equipping the stage for the different pro- 
ductions have been untiring. We are deep- 
ly grateful to them both. Mr. Landers 
made the musical end a decided success. 
Miss Radcliffe has improved the morning 
exercises beyond belief — they are now very 
worthwhile and enjoyable. Mr. Smith again 
has shared with his dramatic abilities and 
been responsible for the pleasure we have 
derived from producing plays and the opera. 

The stage committee has been on the job 
constantly. Four Sophomore boys have 
worked extraordinarly hard in the scenery 
department. They built the scenery for the 
Christmas, Senior and Sophomore plays and 
for the opera. 

Above all, we are deeply grateful for 
the interest taken in our opera by an officer 
of the Winnetka Fire Department.

CHRISTMAS PLAY 

The Christmas play was given by the eighth grade as usual, under the direc- 
tion of Miss Raddiffe. It was a miracle play and following the custom of these 
old plays, it did not take place on the stage alone, but all over the auditorium. We 
saw a shepherd in the field frightened by the star but happily tempted to follow 
it, and we saw each of the three wise men start out on his journey to Bethlehem, 
and a scene in Herod's throne room. The scene at the manger was lovely. Miss 
Bacon was largely responsible for the wonderfully effective scenery, although all 
the grades down through the fourth helped to paint in some of the different scenes 
in the "stained glass" windows. A selected monk's choir on the stage and a 
chorus of nuns in the balcony completed the effect, and sang some beautiful hymns 
and carols to the accompaniment of an organ. 



MIKADO 

Perhaps the most popular opera by Gilbert & Sullivan is the "Mikado," whicn 
was the choice for this year. The Mikado, a gentleman with a blood-thirsty vein, 
orders an execution to take place at Titipu and Koko, the Lord High Executioner, 
despairing of finding a victim, frames a false death certificate with many gory 
details. The supposed one is Nanki Pooh, the Mikado's son, who, disguised as 
a minstrel, has married Koko's ward, Yum Yum. Just as the Mikado has imposed 
a deaths by boiling oil on Koko for killing the heir to the throne, Nanki Pooh 
appears and saves Koko's life, bringing the opera to a happy close. The per- 
formance went off with a great deal of vigor and pep, due mostly to the noble 
efforts of Mr. Landers, who filled well Mrs. Bailey's position. Mr. Smith and 
Miss McFall helped in offering suggestions for "business." With the help of Miss 
Bacon and Mrs. Howe the costumes were very effective with conventionalized 
wigs and bright kimonos. Mr. Bollinger and the tenth grade boys made most of 
the scenery, consisting of two jay screens and an arch. The opera has brought 
a new improvement for our stage, namely, the black cyclorama. It played an 
important part in making the opera perfect. 

We enjoyed giving- this opera, even though it was a little harder than usual, 
because the audience were so well acquainted with it. 



THE COMEDY OF ERRORS 

On March twenty-first the Seventh Grade presented "The Comedy of Errors." 
Miss Montgomery and Miss Radcliff coached the students. The play was a suc- 
cess but the audience must have found it more than a mere comedy of errors with 
the rapidly changing cast. As for Mr. Shakespeare, he would have been surprised 
to see instead of two pairs of twins, as he planned, two pairs of quadruplets. The 
mothers did an excellent job off stage tearing the clothes of each person as he or 
she came off the stage and putting them on another. Each person in the grade had 
an opportunity of acting by changing parts.

"TRELAWNEY OF THE 'WELLS' " 

On Friday and Saturday, February 14th and 15th, the Senior Class presented 
"Trelawney of the 'Wells,' " by Arthur W. Pinero. 

The plot centered about Rose Trelawney and Arthur Gower. After many 
experiences the two lovers came together at the end of the play. English char- 
acters of every description take a minor part to give the play more atmosphere. 
The Senior Class enjoyed trying to interpret each of their respective parts. There 
were innumerable possibilities for good acting. The Seniors took advantage of 
these opportunities. 

The class made their own scenery and supplied the properties. 



THE THANKSGIVING PLAY 

The Seventh and Eighth grades produced the Thanksgiving play. To start it 
off, the Juniors and Seniors sang a Thanksgiving Song, which put the school into 
the spirit of Thanksgiving. There were four short scenes in which was enacted 
the story of the first Thanksgiving celebration. The actors fitted into their parts 
well. The Indians showed the Pilgrims how to plant corn. The Pilgrims dis- 
played their friendship toward the Indian by smoking the "peace pipe." Along 
with the simple and effective scenery, the costumes and good acting made the play 
very successful. 



THE RIVALS 

On Friday, February the 28th, the Sophomore class presented "The Rivals." 
by R. B. Sheridan. 

"The Rivals" is a comedy centered about a sentimental girl of the eighteenth 
century and a young man who attempted more than he could do. Some of the 
minor characters were very amusing. One in particular was that of Mrs. Malprop 
who, as most of you know, is famous for her magnificent English. The play was 
long and the cast changed frequently. The scenery was simple and the furniture 
was borrowed from the homes of the class members. 



THE KING'S ENGLISH 

Presented by the Freshman boys on March the Seventh. A cannibal island 
provides the background of the play. There are two kings on this island, each 
ruling a shore. Ripley, the Irish king, is proud of the fact that he has taught 
the cannibal king's daughter how to speak English. For teaching Kawa, Ripley 
receives two out of every ten tourists cast on the shore. Ten prisoners of every 
description are cast on the shore. Ripley, who ordinarily worshipped anyone who 
spoke perfect English, turned back the faultless professor and accepted from the 
ten a young gentleman who spoke only fairly well. However, he spoke the English 
language as Ripley so that Dick was saved from being eaten by the cannibals. The 
different prisoners were very amusing.

THE UPPER SCHOOL GOVERNMENT 

The Student Government has continued on the same plan as it has run on 
for several years. The Executive Committee has performed its duty of calling 
the meetings and organizing the business for those meetings. Practically speak- 
ing, it has, as before, legislated this business. In the first place, the business h 
procured by the Committee and brought up before the assembly, where it is dis- 
cussed. Any difficulties or questions which may attend its legislation are threshed 
out in that meeting and the problem is put in form for introduction to the assem- 
bly. In due form the bill is presented to the Town Meeting. If any question 
is raised, the Executive, in most cases, has foreseen the difficulty and is ready to 
explain it. Thus, the bill, seemingly in its best form, is passed without much 
question, and those in the assembly merely vote for it. Consequentlv all the ex- 
perience of legislating" the question is confined to the Committee, and this is con- 
trary to our desire to educate the whole assembly. 

On the other hand business which is brought up by anyone other than the 
members of the Executive Committee has been found to be generally unorgan- 
ized, and the resulting condition is the accomplishment of nothing, or hasty pass- 
age of an inadequate bill. 

The Executive Committee, realizing the stagnant condition which Town Meet- 
ings have reached, has made attempts to devise a means of improvement. The re- 
sult was the "Constitutional Investigating Committee." This was a body consisting 
of twenty-one members elected from the student body, excluding those in the Execu- 
tive Committee. This group, having elected officers, investigated the present govern- 
ment and formulated a plan for its improvement. 

THE LOWER SCHOOL GOVERNMENT 

The Lower School held town meetings the same days as the Upper School. 
We held these meetings because of many things which needed our attention, such 
as the care of the grounds, the care of the buildings, and the general behavior 
about the school. Each room elects a president and other officers, as they needed 
them, and these officers met once a week to discuss the problems of the separate 
grades which, in turn, were taken up in the town meeting. 

The President of the Sixth Grade presided over the Meetings. Everyone, 
even the first grade, discussed. We seemed to have been able to come to solutions 
suitable to everybody.

THE PURPLE ANDWHITE 



Editors — Jeanette Hill, Francis Moors, Charles Haas. 
Business Manager — Anna Howe 
Advertising Manager — George Hale 
Circulation Manager — Annie Mason 
Printing; Manager — Louis Dean. 



In accordance with the rule passed two years ago in the assembly, the Purple 
and White staff consisted of three editors, of equal rank — a Business Manager, 
a Circulation Manager, and an Advertising Manager. The Editors collected the 
material together and published it. The Business Manager kept the accounts, and 
the other officers performed the duties implied by the names. 

The aim of the staff this year was to put out a paper with good content — no 
"fill in" articles — news — and especially news of interest to the alumni — and to 
keep up the traditions of past years as to impersonality. The News Summary 
sprung from the need of sending news, commonplace to the students, to the Alumni. 

The first issue was published on September 16th, the first day of school, an 
achievement never before attained. From then on the issues were edited every 
two weks until the middle of January when the typography was put into effect. 
This change involved two things, a larger paper and smaller type ( in three instead 
of two columns). The headings were put in better-looking type and the whole 
paper was made better looking, and more like an interesting journal. The new 
and smaller type also made it easier to fit articles of all sizes into the columns. 

The subscriptions numbered 256 — a record — but next year there must be more. 

The advertising has been especially successful, paying half the costs of the 
issues practically all year. This was due to the colossal effort on the part of the 
advertising manager.

LUNCH LINE COMMITTEE 

Looking over the past year, the Lunch Line Committee has made consistent prog- 
ress. There have been a number of improvements made in the system, including a new 
system of personnel, with a "dux" and a "sub-dux"; a moving sign board to indicate 
which class is supposed to be going in; a bell which rings in the girls' gym during the 
cold and rainy weather so that waiting in the cold is avoided; a careful time schedule 
giving the time for entrance to each class, based on the records kept for two months 
which show the speed at which the line moves. All of these advances have helped to 
improved the efficiency of handling the lunch line. 

The "dux" who runs the line is selected from the Junior Marshals (every Junior 
Boy) and serves for one day. The "dux" is then determined by a rotary calendar 
schedule. 

The committee has tried also to introduce what is called the "universal charge 
system." The system provided for the elimination of the adding of each person's lunch, 
the charging of a standard price to all. 

It is very obvious from this report that the Junior boys have done some thinking. 
Next year's Junior class will carry out some of these ideas they have begun. 

GROUNDS COMMITTEE 

The grounds committee has done good work in keeping the grass in good condi- 
tion this year. They have attempted to build up a tradition. The committee has been 
prompt in getting out waste baskets and in putting up "keep off" signs where it has 
been necessary. The school has recently spent a considerable amount of money on 
improving the grounds. The grounds committee has tried to keep the grounds looking 
well to help the grass to grow by keeping the students from walking on it. 

THE FIRE DRILL COMMIT T E E 

The Sophomore Class chose four members for this committee from their group. Exit 
plans for all the buildings were devised, made permanent and placed in the fire drill book 

The Committee then made Fire Drill notices for each room. They consisted of 
tag board about twelve by eight inches with the plan of the room in which they were 
installed. A red arrow pointed the direction and where the students should go in case 
of fire. 

The Committee presented a plan in Town Meeting for a new bell system. It has 
always been necessary, in case of fire, for some person to run to the office and ring 
the bell at the desk. With the return of spring the Fire Drills occurred frequently, 

THE STAGE COM M ITTEE 

The Stage Committee consisted of two groups of the ninth grade boys. The first 
group took charge of the stage one-half of the year and the second took charge the 
latter half. 

The Committee has taken charge of the scenery necessary for the morning exer- 
cises and has put up the new properties and stage equipment that has come into its 
possession. They have tried to take care of the properties and see that others do the 
same so that people will be glad to give more equipment which is needed. 

ORCHESTRA 

The school orchestra is a little smaller this year than last but it has improved 
greatly. The orchestra practiced twice a week. The lunch period on Tuesday was 
used for mastering the more difficult spots. On Friday, the entire orchestra practiced 
together. With the steady improvement came an increasing pleasure in playing the 
music. The orchestra gave several good concerts in Morning Exercise, one at Skokic 
and one at New Trier and one for the Parents. Next year, the numbers of the orchestra 
will increase because the institution is a source of inestimable pleasures.

LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

This year the library committee instituted a new system in the library. Heretofore 
students have signed for their books in a notebook. This system proved to be unsatis- 
factory because many books were lost and returned after the correct time. Under the 
new system each book has a card in it which is taken out and filed when the book 
leaves the library. Books may be kept out for two weeks and indefinitely by teachers 
and may be renewed by the students. Two cents a day is charged for each book 
overdue. To date the committee has collected about ten dollars in fines and a great 
deal more is clue. By this system less books have been lost and more money has been 
collected for more books. 



FLAG COM M ITTEE 

During the last year the flag committee has tried to reorganize the rules so that 
every class in the upper school has had charge of the raising and lowering of the flag 
for a week at a time. This plan has worked very well (with but few exceptions). The 
flag, ill fact, has only remained after dark a few times. 

The Freshman Girls were the Committee members, with Deborah Butler, Leslie Wil- 
son and Henrietta Boal as officers. 



TOY SHOP 

The Toy Shop was a great success this year in spite of its late start. The manager, 
Stokely Webster, and his two assistants, Jamie Odell and Carl Koch were elected right 
after Thanksgiving. Also Elizabeth Koch headed the Book Department, Louise Ruff- 
ner the Doll Department, Francis Wells the Paint Department and Betty Fulton took 
charge of the Game Department. The first sign of life was the traditional Morning 
Exercise. Speeches were made and Santa was located on the Radio after some ap- 
propriate static and music which sounded rather familiar. Santa spoke especially to 
the North Shore children, thanking them for their support and hoping that they would 
do as much for him this year. 

The departments were organized and the toys began to straggle in. Plaintive pleas 
in the bulletin, coupled with announcements in Morning Exercise, soon brought better 
results. Children were even seen bringing toys which had hardly lost the price mark. 

The toy department did not make as many different toys this year but rather an 
abundance of toys of the same kind. Careful though the arrangements in the gym were, 
with a little perspective, the display seemed dotted with wooden elephants. In fact, 
down in the shop, patient workers could be heard speaking about them in somewhat 
the same way as the grumbling "tommies" deprecated the everlasting plum jam in the 
war. However, carts, wooden alphabets and a few little autos, cradles and sleds were 
turned out. All the other departments contributed their services so that there were 
no bare spots on toy stand or "wet paint" signs.

"Dull-Sheer" Phoenix Hosiery is the latest development in women's silk 
hosiery. The feature of this new hose is the absence of the high luster 
of which the well dressed woman disapproves. This new product is very 
sheer, having the dull appearance — an achievement which is the culmina- 
tion of many months' experiment. They remain strong after the most 

gruelling tests. 
PRICES $1.65 $1.95 $2.95

ANOTHER 
ROGERS ANNUAL 



DISTINCTIVE 

There is something distinctive about a 
Rogers printed book. The clean cut ap- 
pearance of the cuts and type matter is the 
result of the skill and experience of 22 
years of annual printing. 

We enjoy the patronage of high schools 
and colleges throughout the United States 
who want a distinctive book of the prize- 
winning class. Your specifications will 
receive our prompt and careful attention.
